Weekend Plans: There are a couple of garage sales I would like to attend this morning. A few had listed "antiques" we will see what those are. I'm going to work on Etsy update, art, and some of the redecorating work on Cody's old room. The usual housecleaning and laundry are on the agenda too. Have a great weekend. Hugs

"McCalls, Simplicity, or whateverelse was available back then. I just know that I want to make an alligator and I don't have a pattern. So, if any of you have any information available about a vintage pattern to make stuffed alligators, let me know.....I won't rest until I have an alligator.....oh I will rest. I just like to add some drama. Please, I have an APB out on a stuffed alligator pattern. Help me find the pattern. PLEASE

This is a piece I created in my journal on the way to San Antonio the weekend we attended Cody's graduation. I finally scanned it and gave it a little frame (digitally). It is kind of a happy little piece. I did this with prisma color pencils and some inks. I may have to get some prints of this one. I feel like doing some more pics with the prisma colors soon. I have one in mind. I want to do another version of the "My Soul Glides on Wings". I just really like that one and love that it was inspired by Marc Chagall. So, hopefully I will create something of that nature soon.

I finally finished my runner up prize art donation for the Pink Artist Project for Breast Cancer Awareness. I used a beautiful pink printed fabric for the fabric beads. I used fresh water pearls and rose quartz for the accent beads. A wonderful friend of mine donated a bracelet to me that had the pink ribbons on it. After much trial in design of the necklace, I decided to only use one of them for the center pendant. It is a really pretty piece to wear and I hope you win it.
I just have to say that I believe this is an awsome project...and I'm so proud of Monica for diving into this huge project. I admire her for her selflessness and drive to help others. Please take a moment to consider contributing to this. Take a look here: Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
On another note, I am so proud and excited about my latest necklace that I designed. I called it "Sun, Moon, and Stars". I think it turned out well. I have listed it and several other new things in my shop. Hope you will come and shop a bit and tell your friends to come and visit my store. Hugs to all.

Sorry it has been so long since I blogged. I was deathly ill (no kidding) from last Saturday-Thursday with stomach flu. OK, I wasn't dying but I felt like I was. It was such a fun way to spend Memorial (3 day) weekend. I did not do one piece of art or even think of art. Just had a lot of one on one time with me in the bathroom.
So, Wednesday, sickly me and Craig and Heather left for San Antonio to go and see our boy graduate from boot camp (Air Force). It was a lovely week of activities leading up to graduation on Friday. We got to see him Thursday at the coin ceremony. At orientation we found out Cody was graduating with honors. He looked so handsome in his uniform. He is so grown up in his mannerisms and behavior. I just can't believe it is him. But, he is still our Cody with his wit and humor and mischief. Just more grown up and very proud.
I hope to start getting a lot of things done. So keep an eye out for updates on my art stuff and my life. Oh, if you want to see more pics of the graduation and his proposal to his girlfriend (oops forgot to mention that) go over to MY FLICKR and check them out. Yes, Cody proposed to his all through high school sweetheart; Nadia. They don't have any immediate plans to wed because she wants to complete her degree and Cody has no idea of his future yet. But, they have committed to each other with a beautiful, tiny little diamond. It was very touching to see this romantic display in the middle of the airport. I knew he was going to propose, just did not know he was going to do this. Hugs to all.....More, definitely more later.
